  • Description Project Runeberg is a Swedish-centered, volunteer-based project that offers in HTML format more than 200 original-language classic works of Nordic literature, music, and the history of science, plus selected texts in Swedish law and in other disciplines. Works represent Sweden (the bulk of the offerings thus far), Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland. The site also provides biographical information and links to additional reading, to other text sites, and to other electronic text projects. This is a large and complex site under continuous development. The home page lists additions year by year, but better access is provided through the subject (tema) index and through the alphabetical list of offerings. There is also an author/title search page with links at the bottom to the online catalogs of the Swedish, Danish, and Finnish national libraries and to the Norwegian universities union catalog (BIBSYS).
